Under wraps: RSR recreation at Parr

Nearly done…

When we visited Parr to have the Eibach anti-roll bars fitted to the Boxster S at the end of last year, the Crawley-based Porsche specialist had a couple of exciting restoration projects on the go. The RSR recreation and 911 E are now awaiting some final little bits and pieces before being handed back to their owners. Hopefully we can nip along to Parr soon and have a look at the final results.

Michelin Pilot Sport fitting

New tyres for the Boxster

After way too long skidding about on the cusp of the legal minimum tread depth, the Boxster S has been treated to a set of Michelin Pilot Sports. Can’t wait to bed them in and start having some fun, but first there’s the MoT to attend to…

The Boxster will handle and grip so much better when these are fitted and bedded in.

Our kinda car park

Paul Stephens’ car park was brimming with desirable metal when we were there a couple of weeks ago, much of it air-cooled.

Don’t care what the weatherman says…

It rained a lot during our recent visit to 911 Virgin down near Uxbridge. And yet there are certain sights that can brighten your day no matter what the weather’s doing…

Porsche GT3 wins on Monte Carlo Rally

francois-delecour-tuthill-porsche-monte-1

Congratulations to Francois Delecour and Tuthill Porsche for winning the R-GT class on the Monte Carlo Rally – the first Porsche victory on the Monte since 1978. Delecour finished 3mins ahead of fellow Porsche GT3 driver, Romain Dumas, in conditions that included plenty of ice and snow, in front of fans that loved seeing contemporary Porsches back in the World Rally Championship. We were there too, so look out for a story in the April issue of 911&PW.
